CNN tells us another story about black guy who broke the law and was punished for it. He was drunk and officers decided to arrest him when he wanted to enter the bar for some extra glasses of beer. As the result bleeding forehead of this guy (he turned out to be UVA student), blood on his face and the expected reaction of Afro-Americans were shown on TV.
As for me I found out that the level of punishment for the same steps among Black and White is very different. For example I doubt that WASP would be shot death for stealing a box of cigars or beaten to blood for being drunk. But “Black Codes” are abolished, aren’t they?
